    OMG, these are so good! The only problem is I think I made myself sick because I ate so many of them. Question .. any tips for shaping the rolls? I folded them down by hand but they didn’t look good. Think next time I will try to use a knife to fold them over. Also, will spray the pan with Pam and leave the butter in one place on the pan so I don’t have to move all over looking for butter to roll them in. I can stop looking for recipes .. this one is fabulous!

    I made this recipe before and it's come out fantastic, however this year I need a double batch is there a way that I can do a double batch right away in the bread machine?

    I really like this recipe, but one thing I think would be better is if the butter was broken up into it's two parts. The first time I made it it was great, but I've made this twice now putting the full 1/2 cup of butter in the bread machine, because I didn't notice in the directions that it said only use 1/4 for the bread, the rest for the pan. The dough came out rather sticky, of course, but after adding in some more flour came out okay. At least I hope it will this time - it's in the bread machine right now, since I didn't realize my error until a few minutes ago.
